Easy2Start?

Stihl easy pull

We decided to upgrade to a Stihl MS 181 with the Easy2Start feature.

There is a lot of large trees that were cut down to make room for the mobile home and power line and the plan is to build a wood shed and start cutting it into firewood.

The Easy2Start feature has a little learning curve but once you figure it out it is actually easy.

You will love that little saw. I have two of them over the last 15 years to heat my home and keep the farm cleaned up. They are tougher than you'd think, and can do a lot of cutting!

Remember what the Stihl handbook says though: "There is no such thing as a minor chain saw accident."

Thanks for saying that Tim. "There are no minor chainsaw accidents." is a Mantra I like to repeat every time I get ready to start it.

My husband has this same one, and loves it! They say the quick tensioner needs adjusting more often than the bolt version, but not needing a tool is the trade off.
